Stokes Lawrence announces the formation of its Mediation & Arbitration practice group.
Parties to disputes are often better served if they are able to resolve before going to court. Mediation or arbitration with a neutral third party can result in a more cost-efficient, less stressful means for dispute resolution.
Each Stokes Lawrence attorney serving as a mediator or arbitrator has built a reputation of experience, fairness and in-depth subject matter knowledge —key attributes when searching for a neutral party. Several have deep experience serving as a neutral, helping numerous parties over the years to resolve their disputes.
A mediator serves as an intermediary who assists in voluntary resolution of a dispute. An arbitrator is a decision-maker, much like a judge or jury.
The firm offers mediation and arbitration services in employment, intellectual property, business, and trust and estate disputes.
“The lawyers in our Mediation & Arbitration practice group are among the leading lawyers in Washington,” noted Managing Shareholder Kelly Twiss Noonan. “Because of their experience, knowledge of the law, and appreciation of the often complicated dynamics of negotiation, they are well-equipped to assist parties in conflict reach a compromise or, in the case of arbitration, weigh both sides of a dispute and provide a fair, balanced solution.”
